In late trade, the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) is on course to record a sizeable decline. At the time of writing, the benchmark index is down 2% to 7,323.5 points.

Four ASX shares that are falling more than most today are listed below. Here’s why they are tumbling:

Chalice Mining Ltd (ASX: CHN)

The Chalice Mining share price is down 10% to $6.37. Investors have been selling this mineral exploration company’s shares amid broad weakness in the resources sector due to softening commodity prices and the release of its quarterly update. The latter spoke about delays to the commencement of off-track drilling in the Julimar State Forest.

EML Payments Ltd (ASX: EML)

The EML Payments share price is down a massive 38% to $1.67. This follows the release of a trading update this morning which revealed that the payments company has downgraded its earnings guidance. This followed a tough third quarter, which saw EML report a 22% decline in underlying net profit after tax and amortisation.

Mineral Resources Limited (ASX: MIN)

The Mineral Resources share price is down 9.5% to $54.94. As well as the aforementioned weakness in the resources sector, this morning Mineral Resources announced plans to raise US$1 billion. The mining and mining services company will raise the funds via a senior unsecured notes offering. Mineral Resources intends to use the cash proceeds from the offering for general corporate purposes, including for capital expenditures.

South32 Ltd (ASX: S32)

The South32 share price has sunk 7.5% to $4.47. This follows the release of the mining giant’s quarterly update, which appears to have fallen short of expectations. South32 also revealed an increase to its operating unit cost guidance for FY 2022 due partly to inflated input costs.
